Metal Shark Boats to showcase its Fearless series of Patrol Boats at NAVDEX 2013
 
Metal Shark Boats will exhibit at NAVDEX 2013, the Naval Defence & Security Exhibition 17 - 21 February 2013 in Abu Dhabi, UAE. Primarily focused on the military, law enforcement, and commercial sectors, Metal Shark has a wide range of existing designs, or can custom-design a boat based a customer’s specific mission requirements.

Metal Shark 40 Fearless
Metal Shark breaks out of the world of bland and boring with its 40-foot, twin-step Fearless. Built on the company’s heralded commercial and military underpinnings, the 40 Fearless blurs the line between recreational and commercial. Built to protect the men and women of the military, the all-aluminum vessel was conceived as the next-generation standard for border protection, port security, and drug interdiction. The 40 Fearless is also ideally-suited for civilian boaters looking to make a break from the conventional.

“The Fearless is the next evolution of the high-quality recreational boats originally built by our parent company, Gravois Boats,” said Chris Allard, President, Metal Shark Boats. “The 40 Fearless not only meets changing commercial and military needs, but is also the perfect crossover platform for recreational buyers looking for something more extreme than an everyday fishing boat. We wanted to offer something truly new and unique, and the 40 Fearless is the perfect choice.”

Why Settle for Exceptional?
The Fearless’ durable construction and wide assortment of standard features make it ideal for any number of applications, but it’s the boat’s twin-stepped hull, outstanding fuel efficiency, raw horsepower, and unparalleled strength that set it apart from the rest.

Sleek, well-appointed, and built to withstand brutal offshore conditions and near-shore runs alike, the 40-foot Fearless is built on a high-performance, twin-stepped tunnel hull – an industry first in aluminum boats designed for civilian use. When it’s time to get up and go, the Fearless responds instantly to the Livorsi throttle controls by unleashing up to 1,400 horsepower for top speeds in excess of 70 miles per hour.
Whether it’s blasting through the coves or pounding through the offshore surf, the 40 Fearless is the picture of rugged durability. Metal Shark designs its hulls and components utilizing advanced 3-D rendering software which, when combined with computer-guided routers, ensures that every Metal Shark meets the rigorous standards of even the most demanding operators. While its fiberglass peers are shop-bound due to damage suffered offshore, the Fearless’ welded aluminum construction ensures its seaworthiness regardless of conditions. Built of lightweight 5086 marine-grade aluminum alloy, the 40 Fearless also creates a stir in the coves with its jaw-dropping lines, and is tough enough to stand up to almost any level of abuse. Give the Fearless’ ¾-inch hull a beating; it’ll thank you for the privilege and come back begging for more.

Redefining the Center Console

The 40 Fearless redefines the center console set-up with its innovative dual-console cockpit. While the pilot and co-pilot take care of business up front, two aft passengers can relax comfortably with their own separate console. Custom-designed to user specifications, the aft console can be configured to house a vast array of storage options or electronics, including navigation stations, fish finders, or even a flat-screen TV.
With integrated seating in front of the dual-station cockpit, four helm seats, and a leaning post aft, there’s more than enough seating space for pilot and passengers alike. Metal Shark also offers custom bow seating configurations built to customer specifications. Added comfort comes courtesy of the boat’s huge, cantilevered T-top, which provides exceptional protection from the elements. A fully-enclosed berth also keeps occupants dry in foul weather conditions, and a full head is available.
